This dish was fabulous. I didn't have fresh ginger so I substituted ground ginger and I added more than a "pinch" of red pepper. This was so good I made it three days in a row. Read More

This is good! A nice change and an interesting way to use green beans. Because of what I had on hand I made some alterations -- ground instead of fresh ginger; pinch 'a cayenne instead of red chile pepper; and omitted the oyster sauce. Still a good side dish and I will make again. Thanks. Read More

Excellent just like the way restaurants serve them although in the restaurant version the beans are deep fried first until the skin's shriveled. I only used 2 tbsp of oil and added a spring onion along with the garlic and ginger. Read More

This was a very spicy and flavorful dish. You may want to adjust the red pepper to your own tastes though. My version turned out a little too spicy for me. I'll definetly make this again but with less pepper next time! Read More

Great easy recipe! But I think of it more as a vegetable side dish rather than a salad. Thanks! Read More

This was a nice change of pace from regular old green beans. I served this with Thai Style Chicken Pasta (from this site) which made for a nice spicy meal. I didn't use the oyster sauce and I used frozen chopped green beans but it still turned out great. I will make this again. Read More

Really very good! I recommend using a light soy sauce though. Fresh ginger is a must in my opinion. I'm going to try this with other green veggies as well. Read More
